Michael Hurley is one of my favorite musicians and I always try to mention him when I get the chance. His records are honest, funny, and heartbreaking (always simultaneously) and I feel like he fills in the gaps where the sadness pours out. My personal favorites are Hi-Fi Snock and Uptown and Armchair Boogie, as well as Be Kind To Me [above].
